Poem in Your Pocket Day with Blinds.com


Have you been celebrating National Poetry Month this month?  The Blinds.com team is excited to join in the poetic celebrations by participating in Poem In Your Pocket Day on April 26th.

Are poems in your pocket a new thing to you?  Basically, it’s a day to share and celebrate your favorite poems and poets in your everyday life with people that you think are awesome.

PoetrymonthThe Blinds.com office has got a fun window-related poetry anthology we’ll be sharing with each other, look forward to crafting crowd-sourced poems on our white board walls and have a list of fantastic poems to share with you on the Web (follow us at @Blindsdotcom).

It’s amazing what you can find in a great poem – helpful tips, fantastic humor, musings on everday life and ways to connect to people you care about on a deeper level.

Give the Academy of American Poets website a search for the mundane to the sacred and discover some great new poetry!

Here are a couple of our poems with window mentions, be sure to share your own in the comments below!
